Irreperable-Injury Rule Law and Legal Definition

Irreparable-injury rule is a legal principle providing an equitable relief in a tortuous claim. Irreparable-injury rule is also known as adequacy test. In this rule, an equitable relief such as an injunction is available, only when no other adequate legal remedy such as monetary damages exists.
